When my dog turned the checkers of a Connect Four game into several little chew toys, instead of throwing the game out I decided to modify the frame for use as a two-sided desk accessory - using one side as a mini gallery of photos and the other as a calendar. 

Its a relatively easy project to complete and an excellent solution when dealing with the lack of wall space. 

Yup, those are friends, family, former lovers and more all encased under resin FOREVER.

Backside is stamped with numbers and days of the week.

I love this!  It looks so slick and professional!  I could see it being used like a message board too, with letters instead of calendar days.  I have to figure out some place in my house to put something like this.  And great tute as well.

I LOVE the idea of spelling out words on the back, you could make funky poetry and messages - great idea!

I am just speechless.  So freaking creative!  :-) I am going to have to try this one day.

And I def. never realized resin could be so simple - or so it appears.  I really though it was a much more involved process.

Great work!

Thank you...yeah, the pour gloss resin is as easy as painting your nails!  Just follow those directions.

What a neat idea!  and each month when you change the calendar, you also change the layout of the pictures on the other side.  Hmm, where is my old connect four game??
